NKHR is holding a film screening of the groundbreaking Korean movie "Crossing" (w/English subs) and a Q&A session with a North Korean defector (in English & Korean) after the movie to answer your questions about the dangerous defection process and the abysmal human rights situation in North Korea.
All proceeds will go to rescuing six North Korean refugees who are trapped in temporary transit countries and desperately trying to make their way to safety in South Korea.
This event is a part of the 'North Korean Human Rights Refugee Rescue Fund' and all fees and donations will be used to support and save vulnerable North Korean refugees who are hiding in countries like China, still waiting to be rescued from the risk of repatriation and prison camps.
The venue was generously offered by the CUBA Language Exchange in Suwon!
Location: "별밤" POP ("Byeolbam" Pop.)
1042-9 5th Fl, Ingyedong, Paldalgu, Suwon 442-834
Most people will take a short cab ride from Suwon Station to Ingyedong CGV. From there, they should go up the street next to KB bank (three intersections.) There will be a 7 Eleven on the right hand corner. Turn left and look up at the building to the left. "별밤" POP is on the fifth floor of that building. There is an elevator in the back left hand corner of the entry.

We will be accepting donations during the event and people who donate 20,000 or more will receive a complementary 'Thank you!' gift from NKHR for showing your support for human rights in North Korea and standing in solidarity with the refugees who have escaped, but are still living in fear of repatriation.
Our gift is a beautiful tumbler decorated by award winning children's artwork depicting the human rights abuses that children must endure in North Korea. The art illustrates the horror of North Korean prison camps, but also reveals hope for a better tomorrow.
